Yeah, that happened in Sao Paulo. Biggest city in South America.

There's an ongoing epidemic of bike jacking in that inferno of a city. Ride anything over 125cc and you are at a real risk of coming home bikeless. There's lot of acquaintances who simply stopped riding there, it's really bad.

The video shows the standard modus operandi: two-up on another bike, stop the victim at gun point, and the pillion assumes control of the now-stolen bike.

The cop was off-duty and was (rightfully) condecorated for his bravery.
